Cookie Recipe

Porcelain Cookies
I was going to share this recipe with you around Christmas but ran out of time. So here it is in time for Valentines Day. This is my Favorite cookie Recipe of all time. My Aunt always made these cookies at Christmas time and that's one of my favorite childhood memories is being in her kitchen helping with the cookies. So I do make these for my kids 3 times a year Christmas, Valentines Day and Easter. This year they are getting them 1 extra time. I have a SBS this weekend and these keep and travel really well so cookies it is. Okay onto the cookie recipe!
Porcelain Cookie
Make around 32 cookies. I always double the batch for family and friends.
Bake at 350 deg
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar
5 teaspoons lemon juice
5 tablespoons water
Start at top and mix together 1 at a time from the top of the list to the bottom. Store in a large bowl with lid in fridge for 30 min. Take out divide into 4 parts and roll out (3/8 inch thick) cut with cookie cutters, bake 6 min @ 350 deg. Take out of oven let cool on pan 1-2 min then place onto cooling rack. Use a pastry brush to brush on icing before cookie cools all the way. Let dry on cooling rack icing with harden. This makes them very easy to travel with. They stack and store very nicely.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. The weather man is calling for more of the white stuff hope he is WRONG!
Hugs to all
